My friend, I’m having a hard time keeping to myself here – your recent poke at Fire On The Mountain stirred me up (just a little) but hey, to each his own. I have rarely failed to find illumination from his words myself, yet analyzing lyrics can be tricky (and maybe touchy) business, as interpretations are obviously personal things, so I’ll leave it alone. I disagree with you regarding Hunter’s latter works, but I will concede that a huge part of what makes pretty much all his songs great ( to me) is in the delivery (ie:Jerry)

But man, There WERE days …..!

my poke at Fire on the Mountain??? gotta admit i dont remember doing that - but, with my memory, i cannot deny it outright either.



agreed that the delivery helps alot, and can add something esoteric and emotional to otherwise pretty mundane lyrics (not just in Hunter's case)

my apologies sir. I can't find it, although I do have the 'in Hunter's defense' notes I began a while back. Will try to keep my typing fingers in better check. peace
